About

After a sell-out run in Bath earlier this year, A View From The Bridge makes its debut at the Theatre Royal Haymarket  for a strictly limited run of 10 weeks in London's West End.

Find a star-studded cast led by Dominic West, most recently seen in Netflix sensation The Crown, and follow the timeless story of repressed passion that blurs the lines between right and wrong in a tight-knit Italian-American New York neighbourhood.

What is the play A View From The Bridge about?

BAFTA Award-winner Dominic West, known for his memorable roles in The Affair, The Wire and The Crown, brings the haunted character of Eddie Carbone to life in Arthur Miller's theatrical masterpiece, the story of an illicit and barely suppressed sexual passion that threatens to destroy the relationships of a close-knit Italian family in pursuit of the American dream in New York.

Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge is an unforgettable work of art that delves deep into the complexities of human nature, the intricacies of family dynamics, and the consequences of moral choices. Set against the backdrop of a Brooklyn waterfront community in the 1950s, the play unfolds with raw intensity, taking you into a world where passion and betrayal ravage a local community, ultimately leading to tragic consequences.

Eddie Carbone, a dock worker living in Brooklyn, has raised his niece as his own daughter in an Italian neighbourhood of New York. Their seemingly normal life is shattered by the arrival of his wife's Sicilian cousins, Marco and Rodolpho. His niece Catherine has fallen for the charms of the charismatic Rodolpho, leading to episodes of extreme jealousy from her uncle. Tensions rise, exposing the underlying jealousy, possessiveness and misplaced affection within the family.

Joining Dominic West on the London stage are Olivier and Tony Award nominee Kate Fleetwood, seen in Vanity Fair, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part 1 and Macbeth, and BAFTA Cymru Award winner Callum Scott Howells, best known for his role in Chanel 4's hit show It's a Sin and most recently as the Emcee in West End sensation Cabaret.
